Rumors are rife that Sony Computer Entertainment will use its Electronic Entertainment Expo press conference on June 3 to unveil the long-speculated PSP2. However, regardless of whether that reveal happens, the publisher isn't quite done with the current iteration of its handheld. This week, Sony announced that the limited-edition Dissidia: Final Fantasy PSP bundle will be available exclusively through GameStop on August 25, alongside the stand-alone game.
The bundle includes a number of goodies catered toward Final Fantasy fans. In addition to Square Enix's Dissidia: Final Fantasy, the bundle includes Sony Pictures' Final Fantasy VII Advent Children on UMD, a 2GB Memory Stick Pro Duo, and a Mystic Silver PSP-3000. The pack will retail for $199.99, $30 more than the standard stand-alone system price.
Dissidia features more than 20 characters from the first dozen Final Fantasy games, all of whom are called into battle by warring gods. In addition to series protagonists such as Squall, Cloud, and Tidus, the roster includes more villainous entrants such as Sephiroth. Dissidia is a 3D fighter, but the game retains Final Fantasy conventions, including summon attacks and role-playing-game-style character development.
